A few weeks ago, I was chatting with one of Eat Seattle’s produce vendors when a chef in his 60’s wearing his black chef’s coat assertively joined into our conversation; eager to know more about the Eat Seattle culinary experience. His name is Brendan. To sum it up as concisely as possible, Brendan is an accomplished hockey player (originally Canadian), ex-lawyer, army vet, publisher of the cookbook “Brothers in the Kitchen”, French culinary graduate, world traveler, business consultant and teacher with over 25 year of culinary experience. It’s no wonder why he joins random conversations in the street as he has a lot to say. In any case, it was easy to like Brendan…we could relate to our ice skating adventures, our Canadian background, time spent in France and, of course, food.
